Wednesday February 19th
We are now in Pisces season as this morning the sun moved into this lovely gentle imaginative sign. It joins Mercury the planet of communication so as I said the other day, it is a time to dream and imagine.
Pisces is the twelfth and last sign of the Zodiac, its symbol is two fish tied together swimming in opposite directions. Pisces is a mutable water sign; adaptable and sensitive, Pisceans like to go with the flow and may come across as a bit vague. They are the day dreamers of the zodiac and can easily get lost, either in their own thoughts, on the way to somewhere new, or even both at the same time.
Pisceans are good at tuning into other people and have an instinctual knack of sensing what others need; encouraging and gentle, they often make great teachers. They are kind and giving and keen to help others, be that people, animals or plants. Sometimes they can be too giving, as they usually find it quite difficult to say ‘no’ especially to a sob story.

Well I am happy to say that we are fortunate here and are still standing and dry. My sympathy goes out to all the people who have had trouble with the storm, such as flooding and no electricity.
Today Mercury planet of communication stations retrograde, meaning that it appears to stay in the same place in the zodiac before it turns and back tracks through the zodiac for the next three weeks or so. It does not actually move backwards, it just appears to from our earth bound perspective. Astrologers call this period Mercury retrograde and it happens when Mercury moves from an evening star to a morning ‘star’. This occurs quite often, three or four times a year. Mercury is an inner planet, closer to the sun than the earth and it moves very swiftly. It only takes 88 days to go round the sun.
These periods of Mercury retrograde can have a bit of a bad press, but they are part of the natural cycle of life. They are times for revisions and going over old ground. Often secrets and revelations come to light under a Mercury retrograde. Be prepared for adjustments and changes of plan. Wires can often get crossed at this time and messages can easily go astray. This is particularly relevant at the moment as Mercury is in dreamy Pisces. The upside is it’s a time to dream, envision and wander.Just make sure you’ve filled up with petrol and charged your phone before you set off on your wanderings!

I hope you are all weathering the second storm in a week; storm Dennis, so far again we have been extremely lucky here in our corner of Norfolk. The wind was wailing wildly last night but it seems to have calmed down a bit at the moment. Apparently it may pick up again this evening, so I think it’s a good idea to keep the hatches battened down!
Today Mars, planet of assertion and force moves from wild, free spirited extravagant Sagittarius into sensible Capricorn. Mars is happy in Capricorn, it is exalted; in its best position. The force and energy of Mars is contained, channeled and used purposefully. So this is an ideal time to focus on your goals and work towards them. As you may know, at the moment there three other planets in Capricorn, sensible but rigid Saturn the ruler of Capricorn, Pluto the god of the underworld and Jupiter planet of expansion. With Mars joining these three we can expect some action. So if you have been putting things off (and I never do that😜😉!) now is the time to take the goat by the horns and do it! This is likely to require courage to over come any fears or blocks that are holding us back. Believing in our ability really helps too, as my Capricorn mother is known to say ‘ faith moves mountains!’ Good luck in your endeavors!
